I am not sure how clean rtems-ld is for 64bit. Adding the machine type is easy but it could masking hidden issues.

The libelf code is built for 32bit and not 64bit as at the time there was only 32bit arch's. I am not sure how this code goes handling 32bit archs when built for 64bit. Also libdl and rtems-ld would need changes to make sure it is 64bit clean.
